A trick from modern physics allows us to "see" individual atoms: a scanning tunnelling microscope feels the atoms by means of a fine metal tip and converts this information into images. We can also move individual atoms in a targeted manner and use them to build nanostructures that open up completely new technical applications.

Find out how hard disks store information, what new concepts there are for magnetic data storage and what role atomically thin magnetic layers play in this. Observe how these can be explored in ultra-high vacuum using laser beams and how their magnetic properties can be improved.

The human body produces many organic substances that are soluble in the blood and detectable in the exhaled air. Likewise, certain foods can be detected.
We explain how we detect these substances with modern analytical methods such as PTR mass spectrometry and what this is good for.
Laboratory tours every hour from 6 - 10 p.m. starting in front of room 0.1.08
Spectroscopic and microscopic methods can be used to study biological molecules and macromolecules for their physical properties, such as the ability to transmit information.
We provide insights into current biophysical measurement and analysis methods.
Laboratory tours hourly from 6 to 10 p.m. from room 1.1.25
On a tour of our laboratory, we take you on our search for the needle in the haystack: How can we study the movement of tiny hydrogen ions in a protein?
Laboratory tours every hour from 6 to 10 p.m. starting from room 1.1.25
We explore the fundamentals of photosynthesis at the molecular level. We will guide you through our laboratories and show you how proteins are extracted from microorganisms (e.g. cyanobacteria), modified and used in research.
